Every company is the sum of its employees. Here are ours.

How do you portray passion? How do you show dedication, backbone and the desire to work in an international network? How do you photograph an attitude? By allowing people to be themselves. No show. No staging. Welcome to the ElbOil Hamburg team.

Salvatore Somma

Salvatore began his career as a coffee trader for an international trading house in Hamburg and Italy. In 2007, he moved to the oil business with OW Bunker. Salvator’s opinion about the change in his career: ‘In terms of pure trading, it’s practically the same thing. But in contrast to coffee, I don’t need to try the oil!’ As senior trader, he is responsible for purchasing and sales. Salvatore is married, has two children and loves football.
